i have an old wd my book enclosure thats lying around, the drive inside it died and it was out of warranty. Is there any way i can use the pcb, enclosure etc and pair it with a new internal drive to make a new external HDD
Just replace the drive and see if it works.
it did not work,. how ever there was a youtube video available , which helped How to modify a 2016 Western Digital "My Book" to use any other Drive inside the Case - YouTube
Nice find my friend!
